Highlights of Reykjavik
Reykjavik is the capital of Iceland and perhaps where most of the action happens when it comes to hustle and bustle of restaurants, bars, cafes, and concert venues.
Despite being a small city there is plenty to keep you occupied – whether you might be opting to stay based there and travel out to see the sights or if you want to spend a couple of nights immersed in the city’s cultures before heading more off the beaten track.

There are many flights to and from Iceland all year round. International flights arrive at Keflavík International Airport, just to the south of the city. There are no railways in Iceland but the city centre does have bus services as well as taxis – it takes about forty minutes to travel from the airport to the city.
Despite its name, Iceland is not necessarily that cold. Winter temperatures are an average of 3.6°C, and summer temperatures average around 15°C. In the summertime, you can enjoy long, extended hours of sunshine and in the wintertime, the nights can get dark enough for you to see the Northern Lights as long as you are away from light pollution!
Iceland is world-famous for its geology and geography. With huge mountain ranges and an active geothermal country with many geysers, hot springs and volcanic formations to be found – it is a breath-taking landscape for those after an adventure.
Iceland offers some of the best waterfalls in Europe, such as the Dettifoss regarded as the most powerful waterfall in the whole of Europe.
With a latitude of 64° north, Reykjavik offers a perfect base from which to embark on a northern lights adventure.
